Whaling should be banned By: Sarika aravindan

Whaling is cruel!

Whaling should be banned. It should be banned because of these reasons. It is cruel and nasty business, not fair that whales are hunted for commercial whaling and it will affect the whale population.

To start off, whaling is done in a very nasty way. Whales are just swimming peacefully, not harming anyone but hunters come and kill them. The hunters throw spears and harpoons at whales with explosives in them. The harpoons dig into the whale’s flesh, then the “bomb” explodes, making the whales intestines blow up and slowly kills the whale. There is also no use in killing the whales just for money and oil. This leads up to the next reason.

Commercial whaling. What’s the good in that? People might say because you get money, but you can just get a job to earn money. Why do you have to kill whales? In Japan, commercial whaling is popular. Approximately over 300 whales are killed each year. They use these whales for meat, oil, some cosmetic products and candle wax. Commercial whaling is killing whales, some that are already endangered.

Whaling also kills many endangered species of whales. Some of which are the Sperm whale, Beluga whale, Right whale, Grey whale, Humpback whale, Narwal whale, Fin whale, Baleen whale and Minke whale. Japan has already killed 8102 Minke whales. This has got to stop. Whales do no harm to people, they just mind their own business and so should we. How would you feel if you were killed when you do nothing wrong?

To sum up whaling is gruesome business. The innocent whales getting their intestines burst open, losing some species of whales and finally cutting them into pieces for money and food. What is good in this? Why would you do it? I believe that whaling should be banned and so should you.
